Think PINK Fundraiser

18th September

Think Pink Day raising funds for Hannah’s Holiday Homes – Friday 18th September

All Havant schools were approached by the Mayor Elect for Havant just before lockdown to see if we would participate in this year’s charity fundraiser. This is not something we would always do as we get approached by many charities and we recognize that, especially at this time, money is tight, but the nature of the cause was one that we felt important to support.

Hannah’s Holiday Homes has been set up in memory of Hannah Westbrook a very well loved and brave girl who attended school in Havant.  At the age of 8 Hannah was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease and was treated at Southampton General Hospital. Throughout her illness she underwent very intense chemotherapy, a stem cell treatment and radiotherapy. During her illness she never complained and remained a very happy, caring and loving daughter, sister and friend and was well loved by all who knew her. Despite all of this, she continued with family and friends to fund raise for the Piam Brown Ward, which is the children’s cancer ward based at Southampton General Hospital, raising over £10,000 in just 18 months.

Sadly, at the age of 10 on 19th September 2004, Hannah passed away peacefully at her family home in Waterlooville. 

Hannah's Holiday Homes was set up to support Children’s Oncology Wards. Referrals of children with cancer and life limiting illnesses are reviewed by their team. The family can then enjoy a FREE quality fun break away at one of the luxurious holiday homes. All their homes are based on wonderful fun, family parks on Hayling Island and the New Forest. The sites have indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, arcades, club houses with great entertainment teams to entertain the whole family. Most importantly they are within half hour drives from hospital for peace of mind for everyone.  https://hannahsappeal.org/

Hannah’s favourite colour was PINK and so schools across Havant have been asked if children can come in wearing something PINK on Friday 18th September to support this local charity. Where you can afford to donate a small donation, 50p-£1, for the charity, this would obviously be appreciated and can come into school with your child, but we recognise that this may not be possible at this time so please do not feel it is compulsory.

 We recognise that PINK may not be a colour in everyone’s wardrobe and it may just be that your child wears pink socks, a pink hairband or a pink hat. Please don’t worry about head to toe pinkness!

 Thank you for your support.
